We would like to thank everyone – individual or company – that has supported Pawzitive Petz Rescue’s efforts over the past 3 years. Special thanks to Tractor Supply Company of Florence, KY who has opened their store to us for innumerable adoption events.

Sad to Go

Time to put the rumors to rest, yes, Pawzitive Petz Rescue is closing. This decision was difficult to make because of my love for the dogs, however I have to put love of family first. We have been holding adoption events both Saturday and Sunday in order to get the dogs in our care adopted. We have not had new fosters step forward, the boarding fees are huge, and all of our volunteers are exhausted.
My pledge to my family is to have all the dogs currently in the rescue placed by July 31 with the rescue officially closed by September 1. This does not include the 7 pups not yet old enough to adopt – those we will adopt once they reach 8 weeks of age (early August). I am committed to remain available to previous adoptive families should they need assistance; my cell phone number will not change and I will personally reach out to each family offering my continued accessibility.
I am now begging each of you to assist us in placing our remaining dogs. Adoption fees have been reduced to a minimum – I simply won’t do free for too many reasons. However, if there are qualified rescues able to assist by taking in a dog or two there will be no transfer fee and we’ll assist with transport. LET’S WORK TOGETHER FOR THE DOGS!

Pawzitive Petz Voted Best Rescue

The public has voted in the PetLuxe Cincinnati 2nd Annual Best in the City Awards, and we came out on top. Thank you to everyone who voted, to everyone who has rescued a dog or puppy from us, and to all who continue to support our rescue. We could not succeed without our volunteers and foster parents.
We’ve worked really hard over the past 2 years to improve the image of ‘Pit Bull’ type breeds throughout the tri-state area. It’s our mission to advocate, educate, and rescue for bully breeds. It’s nice to be recognized for our efforts.PetLuxe-WebLogo
